I love the challenge of teaching math! Each problem is a puzzle and I enjoy working with my students one-on-one to help them work through example problems as a means of introducing new concepts. The most important aspect of teaching math is practice and the challenge of being a good math teacher is finding a way to make working through the problems interesting. My method of teaching then involves using an initial test to determine what topics the student is having issues with and tailoring my lessons around working through those issues individually, and when the student is then comfortable, showing how it connects to other areas of mathematics.
